    Civilization VI - Game of the Month 18
    Welcome to the 18th game in the 6OTM Series! These games will allow new and old GOTM fans to try out the new features in Civ6 in a friendly environment. Participants are encouraged to post questions, stories, advice, tricks and failures in the dedicated game threads (described below). Each game will specify the Civ you will play and the Victory Condition to strive for. We will be working to refine the 6otM concept as we move ahead with the series.

    Information about threads associated with each individual 6otM -- Must Read if you are new to our Game of the Month!
    Spoiler :
    Please note: If you wish to make a video of your game, please do not post any links to it until after the game submission date has passed. This is because of the potential spoilers that are created by posting before the end date. Thank you for your cooperation.
    Announcement thread (this one): This thread is used to announce the game and clarify the settings and rules (don’t be afraid to ask questions). It’s also used to discuss the game before you start, and post problems with opening the save. Once you have opened the save, DO NOT POST in the Announcement thread, even non game-related information. Instead use the next thread.
    Opening Actions thread: This thread is used to discuss the game's opening decisions and strategies through the first 100 or so turns. Here you can post questions related to the game and share your achievements/anger/frustration/victories while you play. We encourage players to use the spoiler tags for screenshot. During the time the game is active, please do not post any information concerning the game outside of the spoiler threads including screen shots, videos, or recorded/live-cast Let's Plays on other websites.
    After Actions thread: In this thread you can post the results of your game. Please state your victory/loss date and final score (preferably in the post title) and describe your path to glory in this post! Players are encouraged to provide feedback on the game. Some players like to replay the game, and although we will not record the results from a replay, you can still post your new experiences. The game will not be closed as such, but after one month, the results will be compiled, and will not necessarily be updated with reports coming in after the finish date.
    Results and Congratulations thread: We will create a separate thread with the results at the end of the one month submission period (sorted by date and score). We will issue medals to the top 3 winners (based on earliest date finished). There are no long-term records kept for these results, they are just given out to top finishers to reward their efforts.

    In development.

    This game runs for a month and ends August 2, 2017.

    fyi, this is prince level difficulty, and it still says game 16 in a couple of the details above.

    looks like a great starting location. with no re-roll option i imagine it can be a big pain to find the right map for us all. thanks for all your work!

    Moderator Action: Please do not post in the Announcement thread once you have opened the save because you may spoil the game for other players through what you post. Please wait until Knowtalent gets the Opening Action and After Action threads posted. Thanks. leif

    I think it's going to be a fun city-building game. The timing of France's wonder bonus is great for a SV.

    I don't think so. At Prince you can get an extra religion and bother less about military issues. Also you're more likely to get a good panthenon. In fact a religion without too much early production cost is very useful.

    All I was thinking was there was less cities to take early which would be less developed but sure, prince is a much safer level.

    You build your campuses yourself on whatever level. Prince is not safe for SV at all, you need to play extremely careful to avoid CV or RV.

    Only if you take out too much, if you only get around 20 cities the risk is much less.
    May I ask how you get gold if you do not use commercial districts?

    I just can't imagine how to get gold USING Commerical Hubs. Usually there's not enough time for them to make sense.

    You can see my 6otm 17 posts.

    If you moved the campus to between the holy and industrial sites you'd get better adjacency?

    That would be +3 rather than +2 science, but it would take a mine bonus off the Ind. Zone, so is +1 science early better than +1 production a little later?
